    Chinese Internet users executed

    HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATION Amnesty International issued a warning today on its Web site that Internet users in mainland China could be killed by the State for expressing their opinion online.
    Thirty three people were named as "prisoners of conscience" today, for apparently doing little more than expressing their opinions online.

    Two "subversives" have already died in custody, it claimed.

    And the statement, which it released today, also warns that overseas companies were colluding in a crack down we first reported last August.

    Two people have already died in custody, the report said. AI says that anyone surfing the Internet in China could be at risk of "arbitrary detention and imprisonment".

    Yeah...let's attack Iraq and threaten North Korea when these untolerable acts against humanity are happening in a country that we trade with. These are the people we should be giving warnings to.

    Well to put things in perspective, they don't have teenagers running their schools shooting everyone...among other things..

    IMO all politics have a good and bad side to them....

    No, they just get gunned down and run over by tanks for expressing their beliefs that all people are entitled to.

    Yet we make them a "favored trade" nation.

    And let them steal our secrets again and again.

    nuke China
    Nuke Iraq
    Nuke haiti
    Nuke Nkorea
    Nuke Iran
    Nuke em all

    Use clean nukes though they are more environmentally friendly.

    I guess the only thing you can say in defense of China is.

    The people knew what they were doing was illegal and thus subject to the punishment they are receiving. I feel sorry for them but you know how it is when you have a peoples republic where they are so much better off then having enrons an the likes of microsoft.

    Ep, ya forgot Syria, Saudi Arabia Afghanistan, Pakistan, Jordan, and other smaller tyrannical countries in Middle East that are cruel states in the type of punishment the mete out to citizens.

    China has a very poor human rights record.

    Once, GWB is thru with cleaning out Iraq and North Korea, maybe he should aim at taking China.

    Just a thought.

    It is a big country.

    goldenbuddha,

    Neither does the US.

    Statistically speaking the US had a blip of school shootings.

    The games have even gotten more violent and still the shootings are down from the columbine days.

    I wonder how this flies in Hongkong ?

    Hongkong was a very open economy with tons of PC shops and computer literate folks.
    Since the takeover in 1999 by China I wonder if they are clamping down on internet activity.
    Doesn't KenKun live there ?
